"This tour was amazing. It was really a private tour so it was the three of us who booked it. The Guide was kind, was very excited about the site and you could not even think he does this on a daily basis given how enthusiastic he seemed himself about the location. He was EXTREMELY well balanced providing us with a lot of good information but also with plenty of time to take our photos. I have had guides in the past who want your undivided attention and get angry if you look away to get a photo but he is not one of those, on the contrary... he gets to a place, tells you the stories he needs to and tells you "please take as many photos as you want and I'll meet you over there" and provide you free time to explore and take photos. He did not feel pushy, he was kind, was friendly very knowledgeable and I could NOT have asked for a better tour. For someone who hates tours (yes, I actually dislike them) this was one of the only two times I can say I enjoyed it and was totally worth it. I am unsure if there are other tour guides attached to this but if you get mine, I can tell you you would love it!"..."
